Congratulations to Sunshine Coast International College (SCIC)!

Congratulations to Sunshine Coast International College (SCIC) on completing a successful Quality Review Activity with NEAS.

Conveniently situated in the city centre, SCIC’s campus is being modernised to better cater to its diverse student body. Students come to SCIC from Southeast Asian countries, primarily China and Vietnam, and South American countries, mainly Brazil and Colombia. Students are enrolled in General English from Beginner to Upper Intermediate, English for Academic Purposes (EAP), and Cambridge English Advanced courses, offered in the morning and evening. At SCIC, students receive comprehensive support, including course information, assessment details, and welfare support, provided during orientation sessions and outlined in the SCIC Student Handbook.

Under the expert guidance of Academic Manager, Fariba Soltan, SCIC has been actively enhancing its organisational culture and academic standards by implementing various initiatives, including revamping teacher induction and mentoring processes, refining course offerings and assessment processes in response to government changes to English language requirements for student visas, and prioritising professional development for its teaching staff. Emphasising excellence, SCIC has adopted a new assessment rating system, the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), aligned with international standards, and conducts regular performance appraisals for teachers, while actively incorporating student and teacher feedback into curriculum updates.
